Historical Traveler Reviews Silla Hotel Florence
Feels like home
We stayed at Silla for two consecutive years and wouldn't even consider another hotel when we return to Florence. The combination of cordial staff, great setting and discriminating guests made our stays truly wonderful. When I want to escape the stresses of everyday life, I reflect on our best vacations ever and cherish the beauty of Florence and the warmth of the staff at Silla where we were treated like family. Thank you all for heartwarming experiences.
Lovely,clean,well located Florence Hotel
I have been a Travel Consultant for many years,and on my last trip to Florence, I stayed at the Hotel Silla,(I got the recommendation from Karen Browns book). Was a perfect location, very clean & quiet, friendly staff, and certainly well priced. I have sent many of my clients there, & will continue to do so. Next time I go to Florence, I would not think of staying any place else. Keep up the good work Hotel Silla!
My wife and I enjoyed our 20th anniversary in Italy and spent 2 nights at the Hotel Silla. Great caffe latte at breakfast and rooms which were very clean. We found that, in Europe, just because a hotel advertises air conditioning, it doesn't mean it will be on or available. Thankfully, the weather was such that we didn't need it . We liked the staff and the location and found it a very good value.
Great place, great service, great price
The Hotel Silla was reasonably priced and a charming place to stay in an excellent location. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. After room service had closed for the evening, my husband asked a staff member where we could get a cup of tea nearby. Even though they had shut down the kitchen an hour earlier, the staff member made us a beautiful tray of tea and cookies.
The hotel is located just steps from restaurants and public transportation. Our room was simply decorated, but very pretty and the bathroom was very large. We plan to return to Florence, and we'll stay at the Hotel Silla when we do.
Beautiful location but overrated
The hotel Silla is in the most beautiful location with a gorgeous view of the Arno and beautiful terrace. However inside is a very different matter, I was there in the summer 2002- the room was basic/dingy and needed to be thoroughly refurbished, the corridors were very pokey and sadly felt rather claustrophobic. It wasn't cheap, and was certainly very sad and rundown place. It has so much potential and let's hope the owners do something about it!
Wouldn't go anywhere else in Florence.
What a joy to find such a nice hotel, good service, friendly staff and so centrally positioned. We stayed for a couple of days with a group from Canada - couldn't have been better. Will always go back.
A trip to Florence, Italy.
My family and I stayed at Hotel Silla in Florence for 10 days. The staff of the hotel has been very friendly helping us find places, inquiring for tour buses and in general helped us in every way possible. This 3 star hotel, is located not far from the Ufizzi Gallery near the Arno river, a very quiet and pleasant location. The rooms, and bathroom are kept very clean daily. We highly recommand it.
Loved Hotel Silla
We Stayed at Hotel Silla 6 nights while attending our daughter's wedding at the Grand Hotel Villa Cora in florence. We were thrilled with our Room #31 and the location was quiet and close to all you could wish to see. The staff was very friendly and eager to assist. Our rate was $176 which was very reasonable compared to everything else we checked. We had a hair dryer, refrig and cable tv (CNN only) in our room. Be sure to bring a converter for any other electrical items you have. Breakfast is served, however, no other food service is available.
We will be sure to stay at Hotel Silla again.
Lovely hotel set just back from the Arno, 5 minutes walk from the centre. The rooms are simply furnished but clean. Try to get a room at the front with views over the city.
Very attentive staff. Great first floor patio is ideal way to relax.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Florence.
Hotel Silla is a great place to stay in Florence. It is located on the bank of the Arno River and it's only a 10 minute walk from the center of the old town. The rooms are very spacious and well-kept; many have 10 ft ceilings. Also, you can enjoy breakfast on the 2nd story terrace that has great views of the River Arno and the rest of Florence

Pisa: Seeing and climbing the leaning tower is one of those experiences that gives you chills. Just brilliant. Climbing the stair while tipsy was interesting.
A fantastic tour.

Now, having been to Italy before and having an Italian friend, I knew that when your waitress offers you lemon cello, you don't say no. So, she ushered all 6 of us to the back room and poured 7 glasses of lemon cello - one for herself too! We thanked her and the chef and they let us out the back door!
